Lee W. Rosendahl, 73, of Bristol, died peacefully at home Sunday, Sept. 5, 2021, in the comfort of his family’s presence.

Lee loved his family and worked diligently to provide for them. He continued to work hard even when his wife became sick and he was her primary caregiver. After she passed away, he retired and was passionate about spending time with his grandchildren and great-grandkids. He was focused on ensuring that his family’s needs were met, never considering himself.

Lee will be greatly missed by family and friends. He is survived by one daughter, Michelle (Shannon) Glass, of Bristol; one son, Michael Rosendahl, of Elkhart; nine grandchildren; four great-grandchildren; and a host of cousins and friends.
